WISH Programme empowers female coach Lini Kazim
The Women in Sport High-performance pathway programme (WISH) coach Lini Kazim from Malaysia spent January in Alicante, Spain, joining the training group of Roberto Cejuela Anta at the University of Alicante. Lini Kazim was the last participant of the WISH programme starting her leadership education in August 2023. Lini spent January in Alicante, closely following the training and activities of the group led by Roberto. This experience forms part of her sport-specific mentorship.
“I learnt as soon as I introduced myself to Roberto Cejuela and his team that high performance coaching is all in the details. The opportunity to be totally immersed in their daily work has brought so much clarity to what I have learnt in theory. It feels like every moment is an Eureka moment!
This is beyond what I expect of technical, sport-specific mentoring and should be set as the new gold standard. Thank you World Triathlon for raising the bar yet again,” said Lini Kazim.
This is not the first time that World Triathlon Development has worked together with Roberto Cejeula. Prior to the Tokyo Olympic Games, Olympic hopeful, Basmla Elsalamoney from Egypt joined his group as part of her final preparation within the Olympic Qualification period.
World Triathlon would like to thank Roberto Cejuela Anta and his group for welcoming developing athletes and coaches, who want to take the next step in their personal development.
